Bean mussel

Bean mussel

Observation - Bean mussel - UK and Ireland. Description: One of two possibilities. I have 'gone' for Bearded (and not Bean) on the grounds of its description in my books, even though this is a very small specimen and is rarer in Orkney Of course, it may still be Modiolula phaseolina - the Bean Horse Mussel
